The Miss Universe Ghana Organisation has announced that the prestigious Miss Universe Ghana competition will be placed on hold for 2019 and resume in 2020 following an evaluation to implement new opportunities for the pageant.
The National Director of the organisation, Mrs. Menaye Donkor Muntari stated that the pageant will be organised early next year and indicated that the lapse in holding the event will provide the opportunity to create bigger and better moments leading up to, and during the national event.
Mrs. Muntari said, “After careful analysis and consultation with The Miss Universe Organization we have decided to restructure the timing of our annual event.”
This, she explained, will enable the Miss Universe Ghana Organisation to accommodate a new arrangement for the selection of contestants, which will include holding auditions in four (4) zones around the country.
“We have other major plans for the event and have been working hard to give the pageant a new, wider and more exciting appeal. Resuming operations in 2020 will allow us to implement new initiatives and we are excited to share what we have planned,” continued Mrs. Muntari.
On behalf of her team, Mrs. Muntari acknowledged any disappointments the decision may cause to prospective sponsors, potential contestants, fans of the pageant and the general public and promised to update the public on the organization’s plans when they are executed leading to the 2020 finals.
She expressed the hope that all stakeholders will understand and accept the decision of the Miss Universe Ghana Organisation and continue to support the team to stage a successful pageant and also crown a well-deserving Miss Universe Ghana 2020, who will go on to represent the country at that year’s event.
Miss Universe Ghana is a beauty pageant that serves as one of the nation’s leading promoters of women empowerment, and the largest providers of women’s nurturing resource, offering a well-rounded platform to young Ghanaian women annually. Since May, 2017, the new Miss Universe Ghana franchise has been operating under MALZ Promotions administrated by Miss Universe Ghana 2004, Mrs. Menaye Donkor Muntari.
The organization’s aim is to work fiercely to make a difference in the lives of Ghanaian women and to promote tourism in and outside Ghana. The Miss Universe Ghana competition, since its new inception, has provided a forum to strengthen the voices of Ghanaian women, changing the status quo by ensuring women’s inclusivity in building the nation.
